Products and services presented at the event:

  • R&D services: Bittium provides innovative design and development services to customers who demand the development of customized, purpose-built IoT devices according to industry-specific requirements. Bittium has strong expertise on system design, technology integration, wireless radio and antenna technologies, and power optimized, small form-factor device development. Bittium’s competitiveness on these markets is based on strong technology and data security expertise, and on an established reputation for reliability and quality. 
  • Bittium wearable platform for health monitoring is a wearable device platform integrated with four sensors: 3-axis accelerometer, Optical Heart Rate (OHR), skin temperature and EmoGraphy skin conductance sensor. These sensors allow the measurement of person’s stress level, fatigue and sleeping quality. The wearable platform provides an easy way to develop and test new healthcare specific products and services such as remote patient monitoring or professional driving applications.
  • Bittium Tough Mobile is a secure and durable Android-based LTE smartphone combining the latest information security and commercial device technologies. Bittium Tough Mobile incorporates a hardware-based security platform, which enables strong device security as well as deep integration of both customers' own and third party software security solutions.
  • Bittium SafeMove OEM Toolkit is a software package designed for OEM customers. It consists of components which improve the reliability and security of data traffic; and a device management system and tools for data transfer and analytics. Bittium SafeMove OEM Toolkit allows our partners to securely, efficiently and quickly build products by integrating either all of the Toolkit software components, or by adopting them one by one. SafeMove OEM Toolkit can be utilized in industrial internet solutions, mobile computing and multichannel routing products, as well as with wearable smart devices. The Toolkit enables simple, automated, yet highly secure provisioning and device management which are key components of successful IoT and M2M solutions. It can also be used to secure IoT device data traffic and manage encryption keys. SafeMove Analytics enables the secure collection, transfer and analysis of device and sensor based data allowing visual tracking of the device fleet in real-time.
  • Faros ECG Event and Faros ECG Mobile are software solutions for remote heart monitoring, where the cardiac arrhythmia identified by the detection algorithms embedded in the Faros device are quickly passed to professionals for examination. The solutions enable patients’ earlier repatriation and even better ability to react to potentially emerging arrhythmias faster.
  • BrainStatus is a wireless compact EEG amplifier, which is used together with a disposable easy and quick to wear BrainStatus electrode headband for example to diagnose epileptic seizures and brain stroke. BrainStatus enables quick measurement in field conditions as well as in hospitals, thus making the treatment process of the patient faster.
